Depending on individual requirements and time available, the course includes:
- Boating Safety
- Pre start checks
- Ropework and knots
- Boat control
- Getting underway
- Slowing down, stopping and mooring up
- Locks and using them safely
- Navigating bridges and tunnels
It is a highly practical course with the majority of the day spent out on the water or on the bank mooring up or working locks. As such it is important that you have suitable clothes (including wet weather gear) and sturdy non slip shoes (no flip flops or sandals). It is also recommended that you bring a hat in the unlikely event that the sun is shining. We are governed by the weather and we will run the course unless the weather means that doing so would be unsafe. For complete details of how we determine this please see our Terms and Conditions Life-jackets are provided and wearing them is mandatory.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day and lunch is provided. Please inform us when you book if you have any special dietary requirements.
